• Burst Port System-Integrated Seat (BPS-iS)

    BPS-iS™ is a toe initiation valve with an integrated seat and ball isolation mechanism. It allows the casing string to be pressure-tested to pressures above the toe-valve initiation pressure. After flow is initiated, a ball is dropped, lands on the seat and isolates the nozzle section. this operation allows pressure-testing of the casing. Post testing, the ball dissolves, and passes through the seat enabling flow to resume.
